Dental Implant Bone Grafting

information from the

          Dental implant bone grafting helps increase the amount and shape of the jaw bone available to place dental implants. There must be an adequate amount of healthy bone to support a dental implant. If not, it will fail.

          Dental implant bone grafting is a surgical procedure that can usually be done in the dental office. It replaces the bone that has been lost with material from the patient's own body (autogenous bone) or with a natural, artificial, or synthetic substitute. In most cases the goal of the implant dentist is to generate new healthy and natural bone in the area of the procedure. Some synthetic materials simply hold the space under the gums and the patient's body does not replace the material with natural bone.

          Dental implant bone grafting replaces missing bone lost from previous dental extractions, injuries, accidents, cysts, periodontal disease, infections along with many other causes. Although these procedures increase the cost of dental implants, they also help create more cosmetic and often more durable restorations. Several techniques are listed below.
